Great Glen Cycleway – Day 4

4 Nov , 2010  

Day 4 Firstly you may note that the photographic/video accompaniment for today does not follow true to the previous couple of days.  This is largely due to the sheer volume of water falling from the sky onto my head.  Indeed, not only was it monsoon season in Drumnadrochit, to further challenge me a gale force […]

Great Glen Cycleway – Day 3

4 Nov , 2010  

Day 3 A quick peek out of the window confirms that the rain is here today, in abundance.  After a wonderful breakfast at Glen Albyn I pack my stuff, leave my bags to be collected and venture out onto the cycleway.  The Great Glen Way and Cycleway only really differ at this point.  While the […]

There Is Hope! Mountain Equipment CS Excels

14 Oct , 2009  

Outstanding customer service from Mountain Equipment has given me new hope. I can only compliment them on their outstanding customer service and hold out hope that putting the customer first is not dead.

Ben Nevis at its Best!

14 Jul , 2009  

As you can see from the pictures from my Ben Nevis Climb on Saturday Ben Nevis was at her most benign and beautiful on Saturday. It was something like my 130th time to the summit and probably the best weather and visibility that I have ever experienced on a summer Ben Nevis Climb. Lucy and […]
